Posted on: Jun 6, 2024

Starting today, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) C6id instances are available in the South America (Sao Paulo) Region. These instances are powered by 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable Ice Lake processors with an all-core turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz and up to 7.6 TB of local NVMe-based SSD block-level storage. C6id instances are built on AWS Nitro System, a combination of dedicated hardware and lightweight hypervisor, which delivers practically all of the compute and memory resources of the host hardware to your instances for better overall performance and security. Customers can take advantage of access to high-speed, low-latency local storage for compute-intensive workloads, such as batch processing, distributed analytics, high performance computing (HPC), ad serving, highly scalable multiplayer gaming, and video encoding.

These instances are generally available today in the US East (Ohio, N.Virginia, Oregon), Canada West (Calgary), Asia Pacific (Tokyo, Sydney, Seoul, Singapore), Europe (Ireland, Frankfurt, London), Israel (Tel Aviv), South America (Sao Paulo) and AWS GovCloud (US-West) Regions.

Customers can purchase the new instances via Savings Plans, Reserved, On-Demand, and Spot instances. To learn more, see Amazon C6id instances. To get started, visit AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS SDKs.
